In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ Love Island drew 1.63 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating, ticking up on both counts week-to-week and hitting a Tuesday high for this season in the demo.
Over on NBC, coverage of the Tokyo Olympics drew 13.6 million total viewers and a 3.2 demo rating, right on par with Monday night’s preliminary numbers (which marked the summer games’ first decline).
Everything else was repeats — or as we called them back in the day, “reruns.”
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
